Where’s the Beef – At Henderson State Bank


The Henderson Chamber of Commerce Big BEEF Raffle is staying at Henderson State Bank again this week, so head over to Henderson State Bank to purchase your tickets and one of two chances to win a quarter of beef.

While it is obvious that a raffle ticket is much less expensive than purchasing a quarter of beef, you may be wondering, how much does a quarter of beef actually cost?  According to our local Henderson Meat Processors, beef prices are currently reaching all time highs.  The average quarter of beef weighs around 200 pounds and the current cost of the beef and processing fees equal $3.27 per pound.  This means that purchasing a quarter of beef today would be in the $700 range.  How does that price compare to purchasing individual meat at a grocery, discount store, or meat market? And what types of meat are included in a quarter of beef?  Check your local news source next week to find out.

Tickets for the Big BEEF Raffle will be sold throughout the summer as a fund-raiser for the Henderson Chamber of Commerce.  All proceeds will benefit community events organized by the Henderson Chamber.  One of those events is the Henderson Farmers Market where two lucky people will win a quarter of beef August 25, so hurry to Henderson State Bank to buy your raffle ticket today.
